Boise St.'s Moore throws for 455 yards, 5 TDs in No. 4 Broncos 40-15win over Toledo
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) ' Kellen Moore was just about perfect again, throwing for 455 yards and five touchdowns to lead No. 4 Boise State to a 40-15 victory over Toledo on Friday night.
Moore misfired on his first two throws but didn't miss many after that, connecting on 32 of 42 passes.
Still, the Broncos' offense sputtered early after not playing for nearly two weeks following their season-opening win against Georgia.
It looked for a while as if Toledo (1-2) might give Boise State a scare just six days after the Rockets came within a play or two of knocking off No. 17 Ohio State. But the Rockets couldn't stop Moore.
He appeared to be playing pitch and catch at times, spreading short throws to nine different receivers all over the field.
The Broncos (2-0) were leading 13-6 when they got the ball back with 1:22 left in the first half and marched right down the field for a key touchdown.
Moore connected on six consecutive passes to get down to the 1. He then lofted a throw into the corner to Tyler Shoemaker for a little breathing room.
Moore also tossed a 26-yard touchdown pass to Shoemaker for the Broncos' first score.
